hey everyone, i'm trying to invert a mask (opacity or fast blur) on this blurred layer but the effect is the same—it's not covering the whole area. you can see that it's only working on an area. any idea how to fix this? hopefully it's riduculously easy that i'm missing. thank you!Screen Shot 2020-12-04 at 11.51.36 PM.png

Are you adding the effect to the clip or an adjustment layer?

I added it to the clip. I just tried an adjustment layer but it didn't do anything.

Do the clips have different aspect ratio?

Is you windows display on your computer set to 100%?

Post screenshot Effect controls and timeline with clip with the mask selected and mask selected.

Thanks for the replies.

The clips are the same (1920x1080). I duplicated the clips with a blur on one of the layers as I'm trying to create a blur around the figure in the image.

I believe the windows display is 100%

Screenshots with mask selected and without (i assume that's what you meant?).

Not sure but the anchor point is off.

Also use Gaussian Blur instead.

Re the anchor points, not sure how to fix that. all i did was hit the oval mask and i haven't touched anything yet, which is strange that the mask looks the way it does. I've tried restarting the program but the results are still the same.

I just tried using a gaussian blur instead but the results are also the same.

Check the box Uniform Scale under Motion.

I happened to notice you had the "Barn Doors" transition selected in your effects panel. That transition would cause your clip to look like that at a certain point of the transition. Maybe if you used it and then deleted the transition the preview got stuck somehow? I don't know. This is a shot in the dark. Maybe delete your render previews and then redo the effect?

Well check it again an see if the image will shown normal instead of distored, squased vertically. And as said before the anchor point is incorrect.

And remove all unseen clips op top.

I would delete everything concerning that clip, remove from project, rename, import and start again.

so the only thing that worked is nesting the clip. still seems odd that this is the only way it works on this clip but it's a fix for now i suppose.

ann, what were the anchor points supposed to be? i tried altering them but it didn't do anything.

Press the reset parameter button.

From the Help

By default, a clip anchor point is set at the exact center of a clip. You can change the position of a clip in relation to its frame or motion path, however, by moving the clip anchor point. Further, you can change the location of the clip anchor point over time, allowing the clip to move in relation to its frame or motion path. Animating the clip anchor point can be used, for example, to create an image-panning effect.
